“Like rolling stones” pendant made of silver + niello (black mixture of copper, silver, and lead sulphides) by Luigi Mariani
In his own words: “They are no longer to be interpreted as “boxes”, but as stones; stones in movement (see the title), looking to settle down. In this case I also used niello, which forms a visible texture symbolizing the wear&tear (on the stones) that comes with time. ”
Our take: Luigi is one of the more acclaimed Italian contemporary artists which could potentially elevate him to “investment status”.
